    I just taught another “Needle Felting A Gnome” class.  I had seven wonderful and very talented students.  They were Alan Jung, Barbara Sines, Bobbye Kee, Fran Meehan, Micki Donch, Robert Formon and Sandi McCracken.
    They had so much fun rolling up their core fiber for the armature of their Gnome and then dressing it with all different colors of fleece.  Their Gnomes came to life after they added the face.   Once they were alive they spent time embellishing their creations. Four of these students were new to my classes and three students had taken my classes before. 
     Below are the pictures that I took of my wonderful class creating this fun figure.
     For Micki Donch, this was her third time taking this class so she did her own thing.  It was great having her join us.
